We believe in providing resources for families so that caretakers will feel confident and comfortable talking about faith and spirituality with their kids. Our illustrated faith resources for families include coloring pages, simple and practical devotionals for families, and fun activities. We hope to help create a safe space to talk about faith and share questions that children (and parents) have.
Faith Resources for Families
Illustrated Ministry initially began as an illustration business geared toward providing church staff and pastors with creative illustrations for telling Bible stories. However, we quickly realized that we would be remiss if we did not find ways to connect the church with families or provide families with resources that would be helpful, relevant, engaging, and accessible. We have created very simple but meaningful devotions for families during Advent, Lent, and the summer, and we’ve received very positive feedback from those who have used our materials in their homes with their families.
Our writers spend a lot of time crafting devotions that will be accessible for children of all ages. (These materials are normally tested out on Adam’s seven-year-old son!) So when we write discussion questions, we make sure to have some questions that anyone can answer, and then some “going deeper” types of questions.
Family Devotional Material
In addition to the materials we create supporting churches, we have also been providing supplemental faith resources for families to use at home. We create devotional material for families to use during Advent, Lent and during the summer. These all generally include coloring pages, activities for families to do together, as well as devotionals that don’t require any preparation and are very accessible.
Below are a few of our favorite photos from families during Advent and Lent.
If you are interested in seeing samples of our materials, you can find examples of what we create at our store. A few links are below:
We are always looking to create additional illustrated faith resources for families, so if there is something you think would be beneficial for your family’s faith formation, please suggest a product to us here.
